The Nobbies Phillip Island Vic Australia by 


he Nobbies is a well known natural attraction on Phillip Island in Victoria. Featuring large volcanic rocks and rolling green cliff faces, The Nobbies is home to many species of birds including fairy penguins. It is also famous for being a breeding ground for seals. Seal Rocks, aptly named for being a shelter and sunbathing spot for hundreds of seals each year, can be viewed up close via high powered binoculars.

The Blowhole, is a natural feature of the rock formations embedded in the side of the cliff. When large waves hit the inside of the cave with great force, a huge crash can be heard as a spray of white is catapulted back through the cave after smashing against the inner walls.

The boardwalk pictured, winding its way across the green hills, is one of several expansive pathways that allow visitors to explore this amazing natural attarction from every vantage point.

Reminiscent of the rolling green hills of Ireland or Scotland, The Nobbies attracts thousands of tourists every year.

    Now that’s just making me sad… my entire family is from Phillip Island.. I was married there, and my mum and grandparents are buried there. I haven’t been back in 8 years.

  • No way your kidding!! My parents and aunty and uncle all live there. My grandparents built a place when I was young and lived there till they died. I’ve spent my whole life having my holidays on the Island. With mum and dad there now I go down at least once a year. Its my last real link to my childhood since we moved so much. Wat part of the island did you live on? Where did you get married? I used to know a lot of local kids growing up. Wow you are just spinning me out now haha.
